Can you be more specific?
I have joomla 2.5.8. I want to know....

Is there is a built in security system with joomla?
What is the best way to keep hackers, phising, etc out?
If you have no login page to a form, is there a way to protect the form as well as the entire site.

I've seen how marketing ads that have nothing to do with the website latch on to keywords in the website.

Thank you for any detailed information on this.

Hello,
You will find very good information in the Documentation section of Joomla: http://docs.joomla.org/Security_Checklist
